NewsBreak announced today that it’s changing the way it pays content creators. In an email, it says that starting August 1 there will be no more base pay or CV rating system. (Apparently writers have been gaming the rating system to make more money.) Instead creators will earn a monthly payout based on revenue generated from published stories.
